In partnership with Steelco S.p.A, we provide an array of small capacity steam sterilisers for use in private healthcare CSSD, SSD and decontamination services units. Our small range is designed for the processing of 1 or 2 STU per cycle, each model of this range of steam sterilisers are characterised by design, strength and safety offering the perfect solution for small facilities. Process speed and low media consumption make them also ideal devices for “fast track” sterile processes in large central sterilisation supply departments. We also offer a compact tabletop autoclave, the VS 1 TT, which features a single, manual door horizontal sliding left with a capacity of 1 STU.
